I love color! I love layering and juxtaposing the paint across the canvas. With a pallet knife, I build layers and layers using the wet on wet technique. This approach allows me to stay focused and present while creating a patchwork of color that will keep your eye bouncing across the canvas as well as maximize my limited studio time.
I choose a color scheme, with a subject in mind, and layer paint until it just feels right. Most of the time, I feel the patchwork of color is a successful painting. Adding the aspen trunks is a way for me to celebrate my love of nature. As a composition, they make each piece come alive and allows the eye to rest on a familiar subject.
